Please see below for my review of a new squash racket brand called Xamsa squash rackets. I’m also excited to announce that we’re doing a free squash racket giveaway to readers in Canada, the US and UK, so make sure you check out the giveaway details at this page [ends Friday October 3rd].

My apologies if you live outside Canada, the US or the UK and are unable to participate in the giveaway. As we discovered while setting this up, there are actually laws in every country that regulate this kind of promotion — and sometimes even limit or prohibit it — so we had to keep the number of countries small due to the legal complexities.

xamsa-lineup

Xamsa squash rackets are a new brand that just launched this year. Founded by two squash players based in Canada, their their stated aims are to offer advanced products at intermediate prices, and to support grassroots squash movements.

The rackets are currently for sale in the US and Canada for $100. They plan to offer their rackets around the world eventually.

The guys at Xamsa were kind enough to provide me with three of their frames to try out. You can watch my full review in the video below.

Prince EXO3 Red Squash Racket Reviews

This is a 140 gram racket with a balance point of 34.5, which is an even balance point.

Actually this is a few years old. I had a hit with it a while back and had trouble getting used to it. This guy has been succeeded in 2014 by the Prince Team Pink 700 and the Prince Team Peter Nicol (two different cosmetics but the same racket, as I understand it). I did a review of the Prince Team Pink 700 if you’d like to learn more.

Have you tried this racket? Please leave a review in the comments!
